Training for farmers
CARD and ACDI/VOCA have selected 50 farmers in Montserrado county to receive business/marketing skills training with the aim of improving the income of the farmers and creating the link to the markets.
The most important markets for the farmers have mainly been the communities and local markets. The income that can be generated in such a way is limited.
PTA and community follow-up training
In 2010 CARD Liberia signed a contract with the Norwegian Refugee Council for implementing follow-up projects in northern Liberia for the Norwegian Refugee Council. In the first half of 2010, 100 communities were mobilized and sensitized regarding the PTA training project and 141 teachers were trained. 129 teachers received their certificates.
Now these communities in Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties require additional support and training of their PTAs on ways to generate income to support their schools.

In Oslo, London and Amsterdam, for providing Ebola preventive kits for distributing together with the solar lamps.
